Columbia, Mo. -

The crosswalks at Eighth Street and Broadway in Columbia are expected to be fully repaired by Friday which is ahead of schedule.

Columbia Public Works tells us the problem area will be done before the weekend. They were originally planned to be finished by October 14th.

The crosswalks quickly deteriorated just months after being put in. Many complain the crumbling brick in the crosswalk poses a safety hazard for both pedestrians and drivers. The repairs planned were shaving down the concrete base, installing a layer of asphalt for cushioning, and re-installing high-impact paver bricks over top.

Public Works told us earlier this month that they're working with a legal team to be sure tax payers do not have to pay for the crosswalks a second time.
